Postodctoral Researcher (Current Employee), Stony Brook, NY – February 14, 2013
Pros: lots of collaborators
Typical postdoc job, i.e. intense research, lots of responsibilities, and very different from my graduate research area. Learned lots of new things in this area of chemistry (lithium ion and sodium ion batteries, solid state NMR).
Office Assistant- Student Orientation (Former Employee), Stony Brook, NY – September 14, 2012
Pros: very fun work environment
One of my favorite places to work. The staff was really cool, and the job allowed me to meet various department heads which was good school-wise. Pay was also above minimum wage and we got school vacation days off. Coworkers were awesome so was the management. I was able to get a couple other jobs from this job as well. Definitely worth being an orientation – more... leader. – less
Teacher's Aide (Former Employee), Stony Brook, NY – September 3, 2012
Pros: experience in the classroom and experience designing curriculum.
Cons: it was not a job, it was just for college credit.
I worked with one of my college teachers to design a curriculum based on the field of Eco-aesthetics. I worked for internship and independent research credit. I helped him in the classroom present lectures and assist students during projects and classwork. I learned how to organize lessons for class and how to deliver information efficiently.
Student (Former Employee), Stony Brook, NY – August 31, 2012
SBU was a good experience where I met a lot of students who shared my level of dedication and hard work. Coursework was difficult but with dilligence it is easy to succeed there. They have several oppurtunities for internships and work experience.
Great learning stage for the engineering world as a intern.
Intern (Former Employee), New York, NY – August 23, 2012
A typical day at work was learning besides graduate students towards their Ph.D. I helped research and build an antenna for RFID testing. Management was a bit tough since the professor was doing research on his own, so he wasn't around that often. Most of the contact was thru email, but it was very helpful having a few graduate students in the room – more... as well that were familiar with the software and equipment in the laboratory. The most enjoyable part was learning was learning equipment, gaining work experience and seeing the process of what graduate school is all about. – less
Clinical Year during the Radiologic Technology Program
Radiologic Technology Student (Former Employee), Stony Brook, NY – June 4, 2012
I was an undergraduate student in this program. I completed all my competencies. Stony Brook University Medical Center was one of my rotations, and its quite busy there. Their Emergency Department use the newer digital Siemens xray equipment, and it is amazing. It is a level one trauma center, so things could get hectic there.
